VIETNAM 

STUDENTS AND FACULTY VOICE OPINIONS 
DRAFT CARD CONTROVERSY 

The year is 1965. The setting is New York, Boston, or Los 
Angeles, a college campus, a busy street, or a selective service 
center. The plot is one that is endangering America's position as 
a leader in the fight for democracy. 

It seems that we Americans have found a unique way to let the 
rest of the world know that we don't like the way our country is 
being run. Signs, sit-ins, and picketing have faded out in the wake 
of more recent techniques such as draft card burning and self burn- 
ing, which, by the way, is becoming increasingly popular. 

From the hallowed halls of Harvard to the boisterous corri- 
dors of Berkeley, our fellow collegians have seen fit to express 
their personal opinions on Vietnam for better or for worse. Not 
to be outdone in this venture, the students and faculty at Mount' 
Wachusett have a few opinions which are expressed in a slightly 
less violent way than those of some of their associates. 

A survey was conducted at this college. The response was over- 
whelmingly against the burning of draft cards and supported, for 
the most part, President Johnson's policy in Vietnam. Here are some 
of the views expressed: 

"As a former serviceman, I am against it completely. We should 
be proud to serve our country." Brian B. '66 

"Burning draft cards is ridiculous. If these individuals are so 
brave, send them to Vietnam. We should be proud to serve our 
country, not be against it." 

Bruce Whitney '66 

"It's a disgrace. I'm completely against it." 

Prof. Lopriore 

"I think they should draft everyone who burned his card." 

Donald Lacouture '67 

"Disgusting and totally un-American." 

Peter Bubon '67 

"Let's face it, nobody likes going to Vietnam, but if we don't, 
who will?" 

James Grautski '67 

"A mark of irresponsible adolescence." 

Prof. Barnett 

These are only samples of the opinions of your friends. But no 
one has a better right to express his opinion than the soldier him- 
self. 

Reports have come back from Vietnam telling of the soldiers' 
disgust at the attitude of the American people. 

One typical G.I. wrote a letter to his family after hearing of 
the cross-country demonstrations. In the letter, he summed up his 

opinion in a concise sentence: 

"I feel that if we stop fighting for democracy, it will be the be- 
ginning of the end. 



wmi me. 

We have been suffering from a 
serious drought, and the forest 
fire danger is rapidly climbing, 
and the calcination of draft cards 
by puerile college students offers 
a new danger to the country. 

Lest the entire United States

Mr. Barnett' s purpose in teaching is to help students find un- 
known creativity and to complete what is commonly called, "free 
choice." He feels that students are not in college to learn facts, 
as they did in earlier years of school, but to develop their own 
ideas to the fullest potential. He attempts to present \oirtc facts

PRESIDENT ARTHUR F. HALEY FATHER O'CONNOR "The Jazz Priest" 




THE PRESIDENTS HOUR 

The President's Hour at Mount Wachusett 
is a regularly scheduled event when the 
academic life is enriched with practical and 
informative knowledge as a supplement to 
the routine of study. Professor George Kar- 
am, the faculty co-ordinator has invited guest 
speakers that have ranged from the esoteric 
world of poetry as seen in the work of David 
McCord, to the historic element as presented 
in Dean Wuorinen's talk on Communism, to 
the dramatic presentation of the Yakims Pan- 
tomime Theater of New York.
